Just got word from Byron’s Liquor (Broadway and NW 23) that they have Sam Adams Chocolate Bock in stock. A 25-ounce bottle for $12.50. Interesting side story on Byron’s: I was scanning their Web site and under the “About Us” link, there’s a story about how the store’s founder was attacked by thugs once in the 60s, so he ordered all his employees to come to work the next day wearing cheap cowboy and cowgirl outfits. What wasn’t cheap was the real pistols he also outfitted his staff with. Many customers didn’t know the guns were real; they just assumed it was all part of the outfit. Those looking to cause trouble, however, apparently recognized it would not be such a good idea to take on the Byron’s posse. The gun-toting didn’t last for long though. When police got wind of the practice, they brought an end to it.
